It has been a wonderful weekend.
The temperatures reached the low 80s and for the first time in what seems like weeks it was sunny, not cloudy. Your husband joined you in cleaning out the flower beds by the front porch, and while you paid extra attention to cleaning the front windows he spread new mulch around the daffodils that were just starting to bloom. When the tasks near the front of the house were complete, your husband moved to the backyard and built the raised garden bed that your youngest daughter had requested. You moved to the deck and spent time cleaning up the table and chairs and readied them for the first outdoor meal of the spring.
A wonderful weekend, full of outdoor tasks that allowed you to enjoy the fresh air and the much needed sunshine. Last year at this time you would never have had this kind of energy. Last year, and every previous year that you had been in this house, every weekend started the same way. A stressful list of house cleaning tasks. And while this weekend your daughter was able to get some great exercise and go for a bike ride around the lake with one of her friends, last summer she, too, would have been inside completing her share of the cleaning tasks. Everyone had always helped, but the weekends of cleaning were no fun.
The difference this year was that after carefully considering both the costs and the benefits of hiring a cleaning service, your husband insisted that you make the change. You interviewed several different candidates, but in the end you settled on a small private company whose references indicated that they cleaned their home as if it were their own.
The Benefits of Hiring a Cleaning Service Can Give You Time to Do What You Enjoy
Whether you are looking for professional janitorial services for a commercial building or green cleaning services for your home, you can likely find many reasons to spend money on this decision. At the office, for instance, you will likely have a healthier and harder working staff when they know that they can come into a professionally cleaned space everyday. In your home, knowing that one of the benefits of hiring a cleaning service that uses green products is that you know you are looking at the bigger picture of protecting our environment.
Consider these other statistics about the benefits of hiring a cleaning service for your home or for your business:
- Close to 72% of adults will not exercise in gyms with unpleasant odors.
- Little things matter when it comes to keeping your work environment safe and healthy for your workers. For instance, dirty desks can harbor 400 times more bacteria than a typical toilet seat.
- Estimates show that 100% of workers indicate they are concerned with catching a virus when they are at work.
- As many as 84% of health club members perceive their club to be clean.
- Nine out of 10 consumers who indicate that they consider their health club as extremely clean also indicate that they are likely to renew their membership.
- Making a selection of a cleaning provider can include many things, including past references, price, and use of green cleaning solutions.
- Approximately 33% of respondents think their phone and keyboard are the dirtiest items in their office. Nevertheless, fewer than 10% clean these items on a regular basis.
- There are more than 17,000 petrochemicals available for home and office use. Unfortunately, fewer than 30% of these have been tested for exposure to human health and the environment.
- The latest studies conducted by Harris Interactive indicate that 88% of adults refuse to exercise in a gym or athletic facility if they find it to be less than clean.
- Estimates show that 80% of all cancers can be connected back to environmental rather than genetic factors. This includes exposure to carcinogenic chemicals, many of which are found in cleaning products used in the home.
- Research shows that 3% of the global burden of disease is caused by indoor air pollution.
- Spare time is difficult to find, but finding someone to clean around your home or your business can provide you extra minutes, and sometimes even hours, every week.
